Regions considered in the SL_cci+ extension activities

An extension (v1.1) of SL_cci+ XTRACK-ALES coastal sea level product is available. The along-track high-resolution (20 Hz) Sea Level Anomalies are now available during the period 2002-2018 based on the missions Jason-1, Jason-2 and Jason-3 in 6 regions of the coastal world ocean including the Mediterranean Sea, North-East Atlantic, West Africa, North Indian Ocean, South-East Asia and Australia. 

The access to the product is described in the “Product” webpage of the website and the Product User Guide is available in the Public Documents section.

This product has been used to derive a thematic coastal sea level product, which consists in monthly-averaged post-processed SLA and the associated trends estimated along the track of 429 selected coastal sites. This product is described in a dedicated publication (see the following news soon).

Future versions of the XTRACK-ALES product are expected including a spatial extension around Africa and the use of the Envisat and SARAL/AltiKa altimeter missions.
